Hydrogen Car Begins Trials in England
Hydrogen fuel-cell powered cars will appear on Britain’s roads for the first time by spring 2012 through a trial in Leicester.
The city council and car manufacturer Riversimple have agreed to lease 30 of the cars to motorists under a 12-month pilot scheme also involving Leicester and De Montfort universities.
Leicester was chosen because its manageable size meant it would only need one hydrogen fuel pump. If successful, the pilot could lead to the city becoming the location for a Riversimple factory producing 5,000 cars a year.
